Peru is located in western South America and it shares borders with Chile, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador and the South Pacific Ocean. Peru is about million square kilometers. There are three major regions in Peru: a narrow coastal belt, the wide Andean mountains and the Amazon Basin.

They extend over km along the western edge of South America through seven countries: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. The range is about to km ( to miles) wide (widest between 18° south and 20° south latitude), and of an average height of about m (13, ft).

Peru is located in the western part of South America, with Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Brazil and Bolivia to the east, Chile to the south and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

The Andean metallogenic belt throughout the country, has excellent ore-forming conditions and rich mineral resources. It is one of the 12th largest mineral producing countries in the world, and its total mineral.

Chile, country situated along the western seaboard of South America. A long, narrow country, it extends approximately 2, miles and has an average width of just miles. It is bounded on the north by Peru and Bolivia, on the east by Argentina, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Santiago.

The Andean condor (Vultur gryphus) is a South American bird in the New World vulture family Cathartidae and is the only member of the genus Vultur. Found in the Andes mountains and adjacent Pacific coasts of western South America, the Andean condor is the largest flying bird in the world by combined measurement of weight and wingspan.

It has a maximum wingspan of m (10 ft 10 in). The Americas (also collectively called America) comprise the totality of the continents of North and South America.

Together, they make up most of the land in Earth's Western Hemisphere and comprise the New World. Along with their associated islands, they cover 8% of Earth's total surface area and % of its land area.

The topography is dominated by the American Cordillera, a long chain of. Ecuador straddles part of the Andes Mountains and occupies part of the Amazon basin. Situated on the Equator, from which its name derives, it borders Colombia to the north, Peru to the east and the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

It includes the Pacific archipelago of the Galapagos Islands (Archipiélago de Colón). Author(s): May,Jacques M(Jacques Meyer),; McLellan,Donna L; United States. Department of the Army.

McLellan. Edition: [1st ed.]. The Andes are a chain of mountains that extends 4, miles along the west coast of South America and bisects seven countries—Venezuela, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. The Andes are the longest chain of mountains in the world and include many of the highest peaks in the Western Hemisphere.

note 1: shares control of Lago Titicaca, world's highest navigable lake, with Bolivia; a remote slope of Nevado Mismi, a 5, m peak, is the ultimate source of the Amazon River note 2: Peru is one of the countries along the Ring of Fire, a belt of active volcanoes and earthquake epicenters bordering the Pacific Ocean; up to 90% of the world's earthquakes and some 75% of the world's volcanoes.

Although only km (60 mi) from the coastline, six of the peaks reach above 6, m (more t ft), the highest of which is Nevado Yerupaja, Peru's second highest peak, variously estimated as 6, and 6, m high.

Generally considered the most spectacular peak in South America, Yerupaja is so steep that it has seldom been climbed. The territory under the jurisdiction of Quito considerably exceeded that of present-day Ecuador, extending southward to the port of Paita in the north of present-day Peru, northward to the port of Buenaventura and the city of Cali in the south of present-day Colombia, and well out into the Amazon River Basin in the east.

As for our actions in South America, during the 80’s, they were dictated by the Soviet Union, who had as its main objective, worked very hard to destabilize the entire region. We get blamed for much of the bad things that have happened; yet, we were the ones who saved the people from starving and suffering at the hands of brutal dictators.
